I agree they are comfortable but there is a small learning curve compared to Dura Stlilts when walking. Side to side movement is difficult

I agree with NFMudder, A friend of mine bought a pair and i tried them, you have to lean forward a bit because they stand staight up. you feel as if you might fall backwards.
Going down a flight of stairs is tricky in those stilts also. the spring wants to push off of the toe making you feel like you are hopping down the steps.
Otherwise, they are very sturdy and felt great!
